MINIMAL FISCAL IMPACT

There is a minimal fiscal impact to the Department of Public Health (DPH) from the establishment of expert witness certification for physicians licensed in another state. This fiscal impact results from a minimal General Fund revenue gain associated with a $50 application fee and assumes that processing of these applications can be accommodated within DPH's existing resources.

The preceding Fiscal Impact statement is prepared for the benefit of the members of the General Assembly, solely for the purposes of information, summarization and explanation and does not represent the intent of the General Assembly or either chamber thereof for any purpose. In general, fiscal impacts are based upon a variety of informational sources, including the analyst's professional knowledge. Whenever applicable, agency data is consulted as part of the analysis, however final products do not necessarily reflect an assessment from any specific department.
